Ok, I can deal with the heat. I got a ac unit that is running into a dryer tube to my imediate area to take care of it in this room.  But....I have a ferret, and she cant take it. So I have the tube running to her house and shes happy, but i am hot as hell. I have to get this heat out, but only have 1 window. Half of the window is the ac. The other half is a fan blowing air in. I tried it blow out but OMG FAIL! Any help will be nice.

If you had a honey badger, it probably wouldn't care.

On a more serious note, you could try splitting the air condition outlet in two parts; one for the animal, and one for the miner. You may have to use small fans in front of the duct to pull the cool air through the tubes, but for even a small AC unit it could work. I think ferrets tend to be more warm blooded than  humans, so any body of even lukewarm water could help them chill off. That's my 0,02 btc, hope it helps! Good luck!

Ferrets, from what I've read, don't like to be much hotter than 80 degrees.  I am not trying to scold you, but a -lot- of people get ferrets with a terrible lack of knowledge concerning them.  Ferrets are much happier in pairs, they need lots of space, attention, love, and possibly the most commonly overlooked detail of concerning ferrets is what they eat.  Several of the ferrets I've come across were handled poorly, it is a shame.  Plenty of ferrets love to snorkel.  They don't actually have a snorkel on, they just submerge their upper body into the water and move their head around.  They prefer clean water though, in a glass dish.

Obviously, heat management is an important detail concerning most electronics.  If you are serious about mining and the well being of your ferret, I recommend putting together a sort of box or trap for the heat.

I am thinking cardboard (for cost and something that someone with an apartment could probably put together).  Using lots of duct tape, a few well placed holes in the box setup, and the boxes venting straight out the window with it all sealed up and a few fans sucking the air out of the box, you'd have a fair amount of isolation going on without heating up the contents of the box.

The most simple and obvious solution is (as I am trying to draw for you) is to vent the heat to the outside.

Well okay, you could listen to crocodile hunter ferret guy up there^

or.. downclock the memory in your video cards and give them sufficient room to breath.
Not only will this increase your mh/s but drop your temps.

Good luck!

Sounds like you need to get the heat out of the room - you're blowing cold air in, but the hot air is just sitting there.  I put dryer vent tubing over my power supply exhaust (attached with duct tape) in order to direct the heat out from under the desk (regular pc, legs got really hot).  I'd imagine you could direct it out the window - you'd need a window insert (plywood/plexi) cut with appropriate sized holes, duct attachements, etc and probably a vent fan or some case fans to pull the heat through (depending on how far the heat source is from the window).  There's some discussion and pictures of something like this in the 'mining rig pictures' thread.

Otherwise, the only other way I can think of to get the heat out is to water cool, then put the radiator outside with a fan blowing through.  That solution wouldn't be cheap, though.  I seem to remember about 10 years ago I was looking to build a water cooled system, and they had some ways to build a 'bong cooler' out of PVC.  That had the advantage of cooling the system via evaporation so you didn't need a radiator or fan.

Get a bigger AC and setup an exhaust vent and fan from the computer case to the windows to vent the heated air directly to the outside, remember, come winter-you and the ferret will be camped by your exhaust vent having a frozen Margarita with a little umbrella in Dec/Jan
